A pretty satisfying win (any win over the Fail-cans is satisfying). I thought our biggest concern would be on defense, but they showed a great deal of improvement. No; I'm worried about our o-line. We have now lost four of the five starters off the Super Bowl team, and the overall play of that group has declined with each switch. Drew is getting hit entirely too often and the running backs must have forgotten what a hole looks like.
Falcon tastes like $hit...but it's not tough at all !!
What's the only kind of ice that melts in January? Matty Ice!
Just getting back from the game. Last year, when we beat the Falcons and ruined their undefeated season, it was my son's 1st Saints game. After last year's goal line stand in our end zone, he's was dubbed our good luck charm. This year's game was supposed to be adults only, but after last year, how could I not bring him? I did and wouldn't you know the game played out the EXACT same way and in our end zone again too. In addition to being our good luck charm, he's also got a new moniker - The Falcon Killer!
Couldn't agree more. D was shaky early, but once they started putting pressure on Meg Ryan, it was obvious that she started hurrying to get rid of the ball. But our offensive line is flat out pathetic. Please Sean Payton, do not run that stretch play any more until we can execute better. Streif and Brown were the worst of the bunch. Can't really blame the backs. From what I saw, there weren't any holes until we started running behind Jahri Evans.
Here's is Jimmy Graham's TD against the Falcons that I captured on my cell phone. Sorry for all of the shaking. Incidentally, not that anyone cares, but this was my first youtube vid upload. Wonder how long they will let it stay up? I also have another one of the 4th down goal line stand that I will post, but the quality is even worse than this one. It's kind of hard to record a video and celebrate at the same time.
Here's the 4th down play on the goal line. Immediately afterwards, we started chanting 'Deja Vu' at the Falcon fans in front of us because the game last year ended the exact same way in the exact same end zone. Who Dat!!
**DISCLAIMER** I did not get the best part of the play in the shot. My heart was pounding out of my chest because I was so nervous, so I'm lucky I got anything at all. I wholeheartedly realize this video sucks.
